got a recommendation for an 'intensive' website that takes time to load / process?

a friend is looking to get a computer and is thinking a low end one will work as well for him as a top end machine 'I am just surfing the web'.

I wondered if there's a website that is very intensive for the computer where 2 machines side by side (top end vs. low end machine) would take noticeably more time to load / process the HTML / Flash / JAVA / whatever's on the home page.

Any recommendation on a site that's known to be slow to load / process?

Yahoo or MSN's main pages should be slow enough.

yeah?!  So mainstream. I would think they would have their site optimized?

So would you think 2 machines in a store on wifi - 1 with a Celeron (they still sell machines with those chips!?) and 1 maybe an i3 , 5 , 7 will be noticeably different to display a page like those?

While they may be optimized, they are loading a lot of... stuff.  Just go to the store and find out.
